 Growing Future Leaders Programme 



*The closing date for applications to the GFL programme has been extended to midday on Tues 12th September 2017


The Growing Future Leaders Programme is our flagship leadership development programme. It has been developed by John West-Burnham working with deputy and headteachers from across Oxfordshire.


The programme is designed to:

  • develop outstanding school leaders for the future - the  next generation of headteachers - capable and confident in working in a very different environment to the historic models of leadership in school
  • identify talent and leadership potential at any stage of a teacher's career
  • create a cohort of leaders committed to securing excellence for all in Oxfordshire
  • enhance participants’ current leadership practice in their present schools
  • develop them as systems leaders able to work collaboratively across schools


There will be a range of learning opportunities for participants, including 6 full-day workshops led by John West-Burnham with contributions from current Oxfordshire headteachers.


The NCTL is re-launching the National Professional Qualification (NPQs) from September 2017. We have a long history of providing school-led leadership programmes within Oxfordshire with a strong reputation for high quality. As an Alliance, we have worked for many years to develop our programmes and do not wish to discard them in order to bring in “off-the-peg” NPQs. So we are delighted to announce that next year, we will be offering participants on our Leadership Pathway the chance to “top-up” their OTSA qualification to a National Professional Qualification - see programme prospectus for further detail.

5th October 2017*
13th November 2017
23rd January 2018
